's about 1.2 million people infected with hiv here in the united states, jim, and about 20% to 25% of those individuals are unaware that they're infected. and what's most concerning is it's those individuals who are infected but unaware. they're responsible for 50% to 70% of the forward transmission. so our objective is to put as many tools out there as we can to make it easier for people to know their hiv status. >> do you envision a world where someone has unprotected sex, they would go to the drugstore and get this within 72 hours? >> we have spent a lot of time making sure consumers can understand the appropriate use of this product. it's not designed to detect infection immediately after someone is infected. but it's exactly the same technology that's used in doctors offices, hospitals and the public health market. this is the rapid leading hiv test in the united states and now we're making it available to consumers. >> our show has been focused on hepatitis c as the biggest opportunity in medicine. you've got a test for it, but you just don't think -- you talk about it as a billion do

day now. let's take the three big bad/good battlegrounds. china, europe, and the united states. look, we know that china used to be one of the world's great growth engines. it almost single-handedly kept the global economy afloat during the global recession as the chinese communists figured out how to spur domestic spending. but after playing the role of the world's economic engine for so long, the chinese locomotive seems to be in danger of running off the rails. each piece of data is weaker than the last. so what's good about that? well, much of the slowdown in china seems somewhat self-inflicted. when the purists realized it overstimulated the economy, governments hit the brakes and in many ways still seems like it's happening. the hope is that the chinese will stop stepping on the brake pedal but start cutting rates, adding real ago taken to the downshift in their economy. how about europe? the european central bank meeting this week and we're expecting to hear some chatter in unison that's going to reverse the declining economies over there and maybe unite to save the spanish ba

today, an explosion of violence aimed at the united states. muslim protesters stormed the u.s. embassy. they're angry over a film they consider insulting to the prophet mohammed. our chief foreign correspondent richard engel is in the region with us tonight from istanbul. what was this about? and was the embassy ever in any real danger? >> reporter: it was never in any real danger, but this could escalate, and the situation remains tense. it all began this afternoon, when several hundred demonstrators gathered in front of the u.s. embassy. then a few dozen of the demonstrators managed to scale the perimeter walls, get inside the embassy, pull down the u.s. flag, replace it with a black islamic flag. then egyptian security forces moved in to secure the perimeter. under the former president, hosni mubarak, this would have been very difficult. protesters wouldn't have been allowed anywhere near the u.s. embassy. today they were able to scribble graffiti on the embassy wall. this was all triggered by a movie, a fringe, radical movie made in the united states that is insulting to islam. and
way, the good people of san antonio willing to the united states congress! my family's story isn't special. what's special is the america that makes our story possible. ours is a nation like no other, a place where great journeys can be made in a single generation, no matter who you are or where you come from, the path is always forward. america didn't become the land of opportunity by accident. my grandmother's generation and generations before her, always saw beyond the more horizons or lives and circumstances. they believe opportunity created to day would lead to prosperity tomorrow. that's the country they envisioned and that's the country they helped build. the roads and bridges they built, the schools and universities they created, the rights they fought for and won, these opened the doors to a decent job, a secure retirement, the chance for your children to do better than you did, and that's the middle-class, the engine of our economic growth. with hard work everybody ought to be able to get there. and with hard work, everybody ought to be able to stay there. and go beyon
and leadership throughout the middle east that is morphing into this rage against the united states. so i think it is here. .i think from a political point of view, i think this is an area of strength for president obama that they thought could be put away as there was more of a focus on the economy. now, this question of american policy, accusations of american weakness in the middle east, all of those things are in play. and here comes those presidential debates to hash all that out. >> and governor romney has challenged the president's leadership in the middle east after the libya attack, trying to po will i ticipoliticize it. has it gone beyond the debate? >> well, we don't know yet. the reality is that president obama would be perhaps more of the defensive if it were not for governor romney getting so many criticisms for his statements this week criticizing the president even before the facts were not known and in the immediate wake of argue ambassador in libya. >> the republicans are not backing up. some have drawn parallels in the iranian hostage crisis under jimmy carter. is that a fair
minor provocation, a blip, but it's a signal that the united states may have helped unleash sentiments it can't control. even if it's still unclear where all this is heading. >> it's worth remembering that egypt is a country of 90 million people, and we're seeing at the most 2,000 to 3,000 people there. so the vast majority of the arab world, you know, is not on the streets protesting against america, and it's also got to remember that the libyan government has gone out of its way to issue apologies to the u.s. >> maybe moderates will win over time, but they're not winning now. and that could not have been the hope when the arab spring began. >> richard is with us live tonight just above tahrir square in cairo. richard, i remember you and i were walking through there at the very start and at the very height of the protests. you were saying we'd be back, and you didn't know about whby consequences. how does it feel different this return trip for you? >> reporter: well, i think i was concerned we'd be back, because i knew when the lid was torn off this region, for probably very good reas
30 times before it runs out of room to ignite that economy. unlike europe and the united states, the policy makers in china have plenty of room to maneuver, and that fact seems to be endlessly forgotten by the bears who point this out daily. sure, many of their banks are bankrupt. i'm not saying that i don't trust -- hey, they built a ton of bridges and tunnels to nowhere, but never underestimate the problem-solving power of cash on the balance sheet. and china's got cash up the yazoo if not the yangtze for good measure. then there is the united states. here we have the fiscal cliff. the fiscal cliff is something we have moderate control over because it's a question of political will. it can be resolved. anything that can be resolved will be dealt with in some fashion. and i think that's why the stock market has been climbing despite the obvious chasm ahead of us. sure, there are other reasons that could cause the selloff stocks. stocks have had a big run. valuations getting stretched if we have little growth ahead of us. twice in the last month federal express, man, they disapp

, not credible as president of the united states. he's too greedy and too disconnected from concerns of the average american. the romney campaign are also running an intensely negative campaign, not based so much on obama's personal characteristics, his values or the idea that he's somehow in some sort of fundamental way corrupt. whereas the obama people are calling romney a charlatan, suggesting he might be a felon because of the -- how he's handled the bane issue, as stephanie cutter did. that's aimed at tearing him down personally. but i don't have any sympathy for romney, that's what he did. the republicans did that. chris: you keep count in the campaign of what romney said every day. do they feel they lost the edge they had coming out of tampa? >> the oconventions were so close together. they had been telegraphing they expected a convention bounce and when they got to tampa, expectations were being tamped down. since the democrats followed so close on his heel. one reason they're so confident, the democrats, that is, is in part because they feel they've done a good job over the
